The Arts Council is delighted to congratulate Róisín Stack, the recipient of the 2019/2020 Jerome Hynes Fellowship.
The Fellowship is offered through the London-based Clore Leadership programme which aims to develop the knowledge, skills and experience of potential leaders in the arts, across a wide range of cultural activity.
Róisín Stack is a theatre maker and arts manager based in Galway, Ireland. Her areas of interest are artist and art form development. In 2018 she co-founded Theatre57, a collective of over 90 independent theatre artists advocating for investment in cultural infrastructure to enable professional development. Previously, Róisín held positions with Druid, Macnas and Clod Ensemble and was Director of Galway Theatre Festival for four years.
Speaking about the award, Ms Stack said: "I am delighted to have been selected as the Jerome Hynes Fellow 2019/20. I'm looking forward to the next twelve months – to the discussion, debate, connections and opportunities that lie ahead. I have no doubt that the Fellowship will have a huge impact on my work in the Irish cultural sector and I'm very grateful to the Arts Council for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
Ms Stack will take part in a year-long programme commencing this month and is one of the programme’s 25 new Fellows hailing from England, Ireland, India, Brazil, Hong Kong, South Africa and beyond.
As part of the Clore Leadership Programme, Fellows participate in a number of activities including: two intensive residential leadership courses; professional development through mentoring, tuition and group learning; an in-depth research project, supervised by a Higher Education Institute; and a period of secondment, including experience of managing a challenging project.
The previous recipients of this fellowship are: Niamh Lunny, Kathleen Turner, Dylan Haskins, Mags Walsh, Jo Mangan, Willie White, Sharon Murphy, Fiona Kearney and Fearghus Ó Conchúir.
